“I envy Bono as a vocalist – he can really wrench a lyric. This was such a leap forward for them after Joshua Tree and all their organic early work – I love that stuff like Pride and Sunday Bloody Sunday – but Achtung Baby was bigger than life, it was unique. A song like One was beyond ridiculous. I liked The Fly, the performances, even the artwork was great – Anton Corbijn outdid himself. Did I like their last record? (Pop!) No, I didn’t care for that at all.” Jerk.
